Published 3:00 am Tuesday, September 20, 2016

The Pike County Lady Bulldogs trailed just two times in Monday night’s 25-12, 25-19, 25-21 sweep of the Barbour County Jaguars.

“Any coach wants to see consistency, so that is what we are battling right now,” said Bulldogs head coach Todd Reynolds. “At moments we look good and then we lose focus. Being so young, their confidence is the main issue. Winning usually helps with confidence.”

The Bulldogs were in control from the beginning of the match.

“They really had a good attitude today,” Reynolds said. “Attitude is everything. It was good that we came out focused … We have a big area game coming up so we have to have players knowing their roles.”

The Bulldogs jumped out to a 7-1 lead and never looked back.

“When you have a young team early success means you stay more focused,” Reynolds said. “Your veteran teams can handle that. When your young good starts always help. I was glad we had a good start.”

Senkeithia Thompson and Keeyah Rodgers led the way with four blocks while Precious Vaznaian finished with eight blocks.

With the win the Bulldogs improve to 3-5 and 1-0 in the area.

The Bulldogs will play their second area game today when they take host Providence. Junior varsity play begins at 4:30 p.m.

“We will see if we can use this momentum to help us out throughout the rest of the week,” Reynolds said.
